Cultural misconceptions are only made possible due to, unfortunately, unconscious biases that skew people in a direction most accepted by society. However, one Malaysian woman seems to be debunking one of these ideas, after experiencing a significant adventure while overseas.

Malaysian influencer and YouTuber Aishah Budiman has made a significant presence for herself online, particularly in sharing her journey through medical school in India. However, one video of Aishah’s adventure has been making waves online after she shared what a Ramadan bazaar in the country looks like – and her thoughts about a misconception about food from the country.

In the video shared to her TikTok page @aishahbudiman, Aishah began by saying that she only has 6 months left of remaining in India, as she is about to conclude her studies at medical school. Enjoying the sights and foods of her surroundings, Aishah continued by saying that the food she purchases near her home in India is significantly cheaper when compared to Malaysia.

“When you look at the food available at the Ramadan bazaars of India, they’re actually quite delicious! For me personally, the bazaars in India are not very dirty, but when people view things on social media, people have a tendency to share dirty visuals for engagement on their videos,” said Aishah in the video.

Towards the end of the video, Aishah disclosed that while she is grateful for the care towards food in the area where she lives, one issue some people may come across is the lack of using gloves by stall owners when preparing these foods.

Concluding her thoughts, Aishah asked viewers if they would ever consider trying food from the Ramadan bazaar in India.

Garnering a massive response online, many people expressed their concern towards potentially buying food from Ramadan bazaar stalls in India, with one user asking Aishah whether the food there is halal. Luckily, another user stated that halal certification by JAKIM is provided in certain stalls, making it easily discernible for Muslims.

On the other side of things, a few Malaysians who also had experiences in India defended the cleanliness of foods from the country, as they spent an extended period of time there as well.

“When I studied in India, food was the best! Everyone was also nice, only that the car honks could make you deaf,” light-heartedly added one user.
